    Question CountIfs By Month - Multiple Date and Text Conditions

    This is my second attempt - for some reason my first attempt failed to create a new thread.


    I have a data set (col. A-U) and I am trying to count the number of records that meet the following criteria for each month in 2012. Some records might be included for each month of the year, some may only be included in the totals for Jan-Jun, etc. The criteria for counting a record are as follows:
    col. M = "text"
    col. B (date) </= (i.e. is earlier than) "Jan-2012," "Feb-2012," etc.
    col. C (date) < "Jan-2012," "Feb-2012," etc.
    col D (date/text) < "Jan-2012," "Feb-2012," etc. OR Is Blank

    The output would (ideally) look something like this:

    Jan-2012 Feb-2012 Mar-2012 Apr-2012 May-2012...
    49 49 51 53 48

    I hope my question makes sense. Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    MAC,

    Make sure the dates are actual dates and not text...

    Thanks! I changed the Cell Format for the columns and headings noted above to "Short Date;" however, col. C does contain some values that are actually text versus mm/dd/ccyy. Not sure if that is all it takes to ensure the formula will work correctly or not...

    Hi MAC,

    Is it possible if you attach a sample spreadsheet? Please include a sample and what results that you want to show.
    Click on Go Advance and look for a paperclip...

    In your example above, shouldn't the numbers be accumulating? Why does it dip in May? Are there negative numbers too?

    Thanks,
    Dennis

    Re: CountIfs By Month - Multiple Date and Text Conditions

    Sorry for the confusion. To clarify, I am trying to find out how many employees were on the roster for each month in 2012 with a particular qualification. Col. B represents the Hire Date, Col. C represents the Date of Qualification and Col. D represents the Last Date of Employment. So depending on the inflow/outflow of employees each month the totals for the months might fluctuate in either direction. I hope that makes sense but I'll dummy up a sample tomorrow and post it to help clarify further.

    Thanks!
